Prevalence of epidemic diseases including cholera and plague was among the most common causes of death during the Qajar era, and the necessity of fighting such diseases was one of the priorities of the government. Acquiring medicinal and pharmaceutical knowledge from Europe and promotion of general hygiene were among the efficient ways of preventing outbreaks and epidemics. The process was started by Abbas Mirza through sending students to Europe and continued by Amir Kabir through the establishment of Darolfonun (the Polytechnic School). Modern medicine and pharmacy were introduced in Iran by European professors of the Darolfonun however, their development faced oppositions in the traditional society of the era. In this research, we are going to explain the process of development and promotion of the modern medicine and drugstores, based on the present references, and then proceed to examine the impediments in this regard.
